Maltby TE Forged Irons
New for 2010, the Maltby M-Series Tour Edition Forged Irons replace the popular MTF Forged Irons. The Tour Edition Forged Iron club head has been developed based on customer request for a traditional cavity back design with less graphics. The exceptionally clean look of the M-Series TE irons along with a traditional blade profile appeals to the better players and traditionalist looking for more forgiveness. The TE Forged irons are the result of a tireless five step forging process that starts with a raw billet of 1035 carbon steel and through a series of 5 different forging dies and multiple heat treating process’ creates an incredibly precise finished head requiring very little surface grinding. Typical forged cavity backs only utilize one forging die and have to be hand ground into the final shape and head weight, causing inconsistencies in every clubs specifications from one club to the next. By optimizing the center of gravity position, the Maltby TE Forged irons offer Super Game Improvement playability, combined with the exceptional feel and look of a true forged, players cavity iron.
- Five-step true forging process provides unparalleled quality and playability.
- 1035 Carbon Steel provides a soft, solid feel and allows for easy adjustability.
- Traditional blade profile appeals to better players and traditionalist while maintaining a high playability.

First off, these came with stickers giving the weight to within .1 gram, very cool. Secondly, the catalog and internet do not do these clubs justice. They are beautiful looking heads. I actually thought they were kind of ugly on the internet but wanted them anyway for the constant offset and high playability but once I saw them I was impressed. Finally,I assembled with Rifle 4.5 and tried a rudimentary M.O.I. match. The results have been wonderful and have carried over from the range to the course, actually better performing on the course! Congratulations on a great set; I anticipate buying another set just like it because they are that good!

Great Forged Head
For $25 a head you cannot beat the quality, look and feel of these irons. Just a plain and simple forged cavity back with hardly any offset no gimmicks or misleading marketing. They feel great, can be bent however you like and very well made. The also look great! simple and classy. These are superior in quality to most anything the general public can get (non professional club makers). I had a 7iron made up by golfworks (great work by the way) and can't be happier, I will probably get a whole set.

I'm one of those golf fans who has played more clubs than I should have. Mizuno were by far my preference before I met Mr. TE Forged. I had been playing on any given day MP-32/60 combo or MP37. I'm really not consistent enough to play those clubs so I tried the Nike VR Forged. While they are no doubt long they were a bit too chunky in appearance for me and I just couldn't get comfortable with the 7-9 irons in particular. I demoed and loved the newest AP2 as well as the MP54 and JPX Pro. The problem with those three sets is I don't like paying that much for golf clubs. I'd rather spend it on my son or my wife. I am a golf blog junkie who rarely comments but always researches. After hearing much fanfare of the Maltby brand I dug a little deeper into their forged offerings. I bought a set of MMB used, and although I liked them and think they are fantastic clubs in their own right, they were just a little to long in their profile for me. I decided to swap out my 5 and 6 iron MP60 with a TE 5 and 6 to give Maltby another shot since I read the TE is a little more compact in length. Let me tell you that the minute I opened the box containing the 5 and 6 iron I went to the website and ordered the 7-Gap. These clubs ooze classy and beg to be swung the minute you lay eyes on them. The results on the range were immediately what I had felt the first time I pured one of my old mizzys. The funny thing is on the next shot I missed toward the toe considerably and figured for sure the ball would land 40 plus yards short and right of target. To my pleasure and surprise the ball traveled only 15 yards short (6 iron) on a rather poor swing that I know for a fact any other club I own would have had atrocious results. Even the shots which I hit a little thin traveled at the target and had enough steam to put me in a workable situation on my next shot. My other clubs no doubt would have left me with dribblers. I paired the heads with the Score LT shaft which is a perfectly acceptable combo but I do wish I would have gone stiff rather than regular as I'm getting some dispersion to the right. That's my fault however as I mistakenly ordered regular. Anyway, long story short, best club I've owned and at an unbeatable price. I'll never buy another brand/model of irons. Period.

TE irons remind me of Ben hogan apex
Bought these irons with S300 dyn gold shafts after taking a club making class there at golf works. I am a Ben Hogan iron fanatic. These irons have a great look and balanced feel. When you hit the sweet spot the feeling is awesome. Great distance and a much higher playability rating than my Hogans with that same wonderful sweet spot! For your Hogan fans you know exactly what I am talking about. Great job golfworks team on these irons.

Smooth & forgiving
I have tried just about every iron available for the last 5 years. Before this set i had a Cobra CB set with 5.5 rifle shafts stepped to about 5.2 At first i tried just shifting the shafts but the deeper bore on Maltby made the clubs to short, and the combination made the ball fly high, way to high... Bought True Temper SL with sensicore and now i finally found IT! Smooth but yet forgiving,easy to get the ball in the air even on mishits. Highly recommended if you don't like offset clubs!

End of a Long Search
I have a pile of 7 iron heads from testing to find a perfect club. This is it. Assembled them on FST PRO 115 shafts and have never been more pleased with a set of irons. They seem able to correct for off center hits but still let you know how you are striking the ball. Also makes a beautiful club with very clean lines, especially with leaving the labels off the shafts. At less than half the price of comparable (yet not as great) manufactured clubs, I must salute Maltby and The GolfWorks.

These are amazing club heads. They are so forgiving with such a small head. Beautiful look at address. I coupled them with Grafalloy ProCustom shafts and Lamkin X10 grips. I had to add quite a bit of weight to the heads to get to my preferred d2 swingweight but was successful at forming the lead tape inside of the curve of the cavity so they look pretty cool. Best playing club I have owned. Nice high ball flight with good distance on off center hits. Highly recommended!

do you have these heads in left hand.
Unfortunately these heads are only manufactured in right handed designation.

Other than the color and the +1 loft, how do these differ from the DBM head?
These have a chrome plated finish and the DBM's have the black finish and the +1 degree loft change that you mentioned. Those are the only differences.

Will you ever make these iron heads or the mb's in a 'left hand' ? It's ?so frustrating ?finding and iron I ?would love to buy and then find out that it's not available for us backward guys. I hope you will. Thanks for your time
There are no plans at this time to make the TE irons in left hand. We understand your frustration, but the cost to tool a set of true billet forged irons is very high and the quantity requirement for orders is high as well. Unfortunately, history and experience tells us that there would be not enough sales to justify the cost. Still, we will continue to look for options for LH that are cost effective for both us and our customers.

What are the lie limits for this club? ?I see you can go at least 3 degrees upright and assume 3 degrees flat is also possible? More?
If you are experienced and have the correct tools, 3 degrees can be done, either way. The material can possibly be bent slightly more, but more than 3 degrees could cause damage to the chrome. The 1035 carbon steel can possibly be bent more, but again, the chrome would be a concern.

One of the commenters mentioned they changed the shafts into the TE forged heads and the clubs were too short because of the heads.
It depends on what clubs the commenter removed the shafts from. All of our Maltby designs are designed with short hosels so that the weight can be distributed to a useful position in the club head to improve playability. If the shafts were pulled from a long hosel golf club and inserted into a shorter hosel golf club, the lengths would be shorter.

What is the difference in playability between using a .355 vs. 370 shaft?
According to the shaft companies, there is no playability difference. Our experience would agree, but we would add that there could be a difference in the feel of the club, depending on how sensitive a players feel is. Most .355 taper tip shafts are constant weight shafts, meaning all the shafts, no matter the length, weigh the same. .370 parallel shafts that start as a blank and require tip and butt cutting to length, will not maintain a constant weight throughout a set. As you cut the blank shorter, the shaft will get lighter. There are some .370 discrete length constant weight offerings, but most .370 tips are blanks that are trimed for flex and length. .355 taper tip sets are discrete length (progressive lengths, usually in 1/2 inch increments) and are constant weight.

about Maltby - why are the TE forged irons the only one with the degrees shown?
The TE Forged is an older model that we have and sold actually under 3 different names as well as groove changes. It is likely that we set the ordering page up with the lofts way back when and whether do to space restrictions or just change of thought on how we set up the pages now we do not include the lofts. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page with all of the models you will find the specification box with the lofts, lies, and weights etc.
